Time Out says

Designed to evoke the experience of a family voyage on the world's largest river, 'Amazon Adventure' incorporates plenty of interactive elements. Live tetras and stingrays will be among the exhibits, while the stimulated (but gentle) electric zap of an eel will give children the chance to discover more about the river's unusual creatures. The exhibition also highlights the environmental damage the Amazon is currently facing, and explores the impact of cattle ranching, fishing and logging on the wildlife and people who rely on the river.
